ODYSSEAS  MUSIC JOURNEY

The  art of memory...


Tell me, Muse, of that man of many resources, who wandered far and wide, after sacking the holy citadel of Troy. Many the men whose cities he saw, whose ways he learned. Many the sorrows he suffered at sea, while trying to bring himself and his friends back alive.

Main  idea

"Odysseas journey-the art of memory" is a series of nine multilingual television episodes, each lasting one hour, which aims to highlight the intercultural relationship between the Homeric myth (Odyssey), the natural landscape, and the musical traditions of the Mediterranean. The documentary combines the narrative of the Odyssey with the landscapes of the main hero's journey as described in the Homeric epic. At the same time, it explores various musical sounds related to the Odyssey, musical memory, the relationship between music and literature and seeks the imprint of the Homeric myth through the views of various experts.
